MANSFIELD, OHIO, UNITED STATES, May 18, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — As the school year wraps up for many teachers, stress is at its highest, but Mind Body Align is rolling out a new program to help. Always working to improve the culture of workplaces and schools, Mind Body Align announced today that they are supporting teachers by offering scholarships for a new professional development experience.
“We are pleased to offer teachers scholarships for professional development that supports them in restoring their passion for work and in building resilience,” said Jennifer Blue, president of Mind Body Align. “This program allows educators to focus on wellbeing and gratitude. They can complete the enjoyable eight hour program on their own time. We then gather for a one hour Zoom to practice what is learned.”
The purpose of the scholarship program is to make “Intro to Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Living Mindfully for Educators” accessible to educators who may not have access otherwise. It allows educators an opportunity to fulfill their educator professional development objectives and earn continuing education units (CEUs). It also gives them access to tools and techniques that allow them to be more successful.
The scholarship is open to everyone, and is designed to apply across disciplines, benefiting teachers and staff, psychologists, coaches, paraprofessionals, and more.
It includes opportunities to learn the science and practice of mindfulness, how to cultivate a mindful lifestyle, create a plan for applying practices in life, and learn strategies for integrating mindfulness into the educational setting.
Some of the positive outcomes include:
• Improved sleep quality
• Improve focus and avoid monkey mind
• Reduce stress or anxiety
• Improve blood pressure and other health benefits
New sessions will begin quarterly, with the first being in June. June participants will have access to the course from June 1 – June 30th, 2023, with a live Zoom attendance on June 21st from 7-8:30 pm EST (alternate dates will be available). The Live Zoom is a unique opportunity to learn practical applications and how to take it into the classroom.
